    When you add an authorized user to your account and then your account information shows up on their credit reports, does FICO recognize this and adds/decreases their score?

    Directly from a FICO supervisor.... YES! Some retail cards that are joint accounts show up as AU. Fico counts them all the same. This answer ONLY applys to FICO which is only available to consumers via the Equifax website. Any other scoring system may or may not respond the same.
